Port Vale win

Port Vale have displayed exceptional form over the last few weeks. Apart from being able to pick up a 100% win record in the last four matches, the team has also displayed a lot of grit. During the weekend, the team was losing in injury time and came up with a brace to beat Leyton Orient at home. Meanwhile, Rochdale are moving from one disappointing result to the other and the club are slipping down in the bottom three.

Total goals more than 2.5

After keeping back-to-back clean sheets in the league, Port Vale conceded twice against Leyton Orient. In fact, the clean sheets against Harrogate and Scunthorpe do not set a great standard since Port Vale have conceded a bucket load of goals in other matches. Rochdale scored twice in the recent meeting with Leyton Orient back in May.

Both teams to score – yes

The table might show Port Vale at the end of the spectrum in terms of points tally but this is not necessarily the case in terms of defensive successes. The team has conceded five goals in as many games and this should provide confidence for Rochdale, who have not scored in the last two matches.

Port Vale

Port Vale are going through a period of excellent results and the team to make the most of it if they want to get a promotion to League One. Incredibly, Port Vale’s last disappointing result came against Rochdale. Darrell Clarke does not have any injury worries in the squad.


Rochdale are going through a small crisis after three consecutive losses in all competitions. It is especially difficult with Rochdale manager Robbie Stockdale failing to see his team get a goal in the last two league outings. Thankfully, Stockdale does not have any fitness concerns in the squad.
